From appraising for murder to talking like a pirate
I'm happy to report that Appraisal for Murder has risen to number 58 in the women sleuths category on Amazon. That's for paid books and it's 20 places higher than it was at the end of last week. In between was a free download day, and that seems to have called attention to the book. Its sales have gone up a bit as have those for Rekindling Motives and When the Carny Comes to Town, the second and third books of the Jolie Gentil cozy mystery series. Meanwhile, I'm working on the fourth book. Too early to give it a title. I have an informal one, but those never seem to be the final title. At a meeting of the "Harvest for All" Food Pantry, Scoobie did bring up the idea for a fundraiser centered around "Talk Like a Pirate Day." This September 19th "holiday" is the source of a lot of fun around the country and the world. Shiver me timbers, it looks as if we'll have our very own event in Ocean Alley.
